Join us on Zoom for a talk exploring diversity in Tiverton’s history from its early medieval origins to later visitors and settlers.

Tiverton’s history is deep and broad, taking in stories of refugees, ex slaves, entrepreneurs, farmworkers, entertainers and soldiers.

During this digital event, the project team will share a collection of stories from different periods, using the Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life archives to illustrate the wide range of people who have travelled to Tiverton from places such as the Americas, India, Slovenia, Italy, Vietnam, Kenya and Hong Kong.

The talk will be held on Tuesday 20th October 2020, from 7 – 8.30 pm, via the Zoom platform.

Joining instructions and the meeting link will be shared the day before the event.
